What's so funny about abortion?

Last Sunday, Jan. 22, 2012, was the 39th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v Wade decision.
In the name of a woman’s “right to privacy” under the due process clause of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment, the floodgates were opened to legalized abortion. In those 39 years, more than 54 million (54,559,615) tiny human beings were killed.
Have you ever listened to the Roe v Wade arguments?
Sarah Weddington was the young attorney who represented “Jane Roe” (real name Norma McCorvey) before the Supreme Court. The legality of abortion hinges on the unborn not being recognized as a “person” in the U.S. legal system. Not being recognized as “persons” in turn means that the unborn human life has no constitutional right to protection of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
All of that is curious to say the least, given the Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling that business corporations are “persons” under the law.
During Weddington’s appearance before the Supreme Court in the Roe v Wade hearing, every time when the subject of whether the unborn is a “person” came up, there was laughter in the audience. You can hear the tittering at the 0:33 and 1:00 marks in this audio:

Go to this site for another audio. Laughter can be heard at the 24:00 and 24:10 marks, every time someone said “If it was established that a fetus were a person under the Constitution….”
So my question is:

What is so darn funny about abortion? What is so funny about discussing killing “a fetus” an unborn human being?

Norma McCorvey speaks for pro-life, 2009


In 1994, 21 years after Roe v Wade, “Jane Roe” Norma McCorvey converted to Christianity and expressed remorse for her part in the Supreme Court decision. She began working in the pro-life movement, such as Operation Rescue. In 1998, at age 51, McCorvey was formally received into the Roman Catholic Church. At the same time, she declared she was no longer a lesbian.

Sarah Weddington speaks at pro-abortion rally, 2004


Sarah Weddington enjoyed much professional success after Roe v Wade. She was a legislator in the Texas House of Representatives from 1972 to 1977; General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1977; and a special White House advisor in the Carter administration, during which time she helped appoint Ruth Bader Ginsburg to a federal judgeship. Weddington is currently an adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Now 67 years old, she remains unrepentant and continues to advocate abortion. In 2004, she was one of the speakers at a March for Women’s Life in Washington, DC.

Wow, I did not know the full story about how Roe vs Wade came about and Sarah Weddington becoming a Christian. I wrote a paper year ago for a college assignment arguing the pro-life stance. I wish I could find that disk I saved it to. Great post and thanks for sharing it.

I think it is the devils from hell that are those persons laughing or possessing them. That’s the laughter of hell and Satan laughing at babies being genocided.

What’s so stupid are the arguments used to “justify” abortion that ignore the reason we oppose it. They say things like “you don’t *like* abortion,” “well you don’t have to have an abortion but leave others alone,” “what about overpopulation,” and “what about unwanted children who are abused?” NONE of these arguments address the fact that the reason we oppose abortion is because it is the killing of an innocent child with a soul, and that many of the procedures are done when the baby feels excruciating pain. “Like” is a condescending choice of words as if we are talking… Read more »

There is nothing humorous in anything relating to abortion… nada…zip. If indeed there were those in the vid that were chuckling to the idea that a fetus could possibly be considered a human being before birth, then may God have mercy on their souls… It’s unfortunate that there are so many who believe this way. I recently met a couple at church who basically laughed at the idea as well. Further elaboration on their part revealed that it is merely a blob of tissue and the baby’s (blob’s) life was not considered life until he/she took their first breath on… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for pointing out this horrific evil! Evil cannnot empathize, and, you cannot negotiate with evil. There is no verbiage or language that can justify abortion to take away the actuality of it, the killing of a human being, a little child-the killing of the Innocents by the millions! And, there is no such thing as a “right to privacy.” If that were the case, then the I.R.S. would fold up as well as many other governmental agencies. The legal premise for Roe v. Wade is completely and utterly without merit.

Grouchy: Have you read “Heaven is For real” by Todd Burpo. Or “The Shack” by William P Young. Both stories are entirely within the realm of our Lord to make happen!

This really chaps my hide! I mean if the “fetus” isn’t a baby yet then why are pro-choice groups up in arms about Texas’s law making a sonogram a requirement before every single abortion? If it is just “cells” they are looking at, then why would they change their mind after seeing the picture of the “fetus”? B/c the “fetus” is a BABY with fingers and toes. Another thing that just tee-totally irks the heck outa me, is the way Abortion Activist go around calling themselves PRO-CHOICE. Wake up GIRLS, if they were really fighting for YOUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE,… Read more »

Lets be honest here, the MAJORITY of abortions in this country don’t have ANYTHING to do with a woman’s health, what Pro Choice activists hide behind. It has to do with one thing. Dealing with the “consequences” of pregnancy. Abortion always reminds me of King David’s affair with Bathsheba. (2 Samuel 11) If King David had been at war fighting like he was suppose to be…he wouldn’t have been bored, walking around on his roof…he wouldn’t have seen Bathsheba in the bath…he wouldn’t have had an affair…he wouldn’t have gotten Bathsheba pregnant…he wouldn’t have murdered her husband. (Cover-up!) Premarital sex…pregnancy…Abortion…Living… Read more »

I so wish that the people, that do this to y’all, could have this treasure that we have deep inside these jars of clay. I wish they could understand the peace instead of the hatred.
